Defendant's Attorney: Ashley M. Manfull, Charles F. Billington, III, George L. Stevens , III

Description: Akron, Ohioa employment law lawyers represented Plaintiff who sued Defendant on a Fair Labor Standards Act violation theory.

Defendant is the manufacturer of GOJO Hand Cleaner and Purell Advanced Hand Sanitzer and similar products.

"The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor standards affecting employees in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments.

The FLSA was enacted in 1938 to protect workers from unfair labor practices such as wage theft and child labor. The law has been amended several times since its enactment, most recently in 2009.

The FLSA applies to all employers who engage in interstate commerce or in the production of goods for interstate commerce. The law also applies to state and local governments.

The FLSA sets a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour for most employees. Employees who are under 20 years old may be paid a lower minimum wage, but not less than $4.25 per hour.

The FLSA also requires employers to pay overtime pay to employees who work more than 40 hours in a workweek. Overtime pay is calculated at a rate of one and one-half times the employee's regular rate of pay.

The FLSA requires employers to keep records of their employees' hours worked, wages paid, and other information. These records must be kept for at least three years.

The FLSA prohibits the employment of children under the age of 14 in most jobs. Children who are 14 and 15 years old may be employed in certain jobs, but they are subject to restrictions on the number of hours they can work and the types of jobs they can do.

The FLSA is enforced by the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor. The Wage and Hour Division investigates complaints of violations of the FLSA and can take legal action against employers who violate the law.

If you believe that your employer has violated the FLSA, you can file a complaint with the Wage and Hour Division. You can file a complaint online or by calling 1-866-4-US-WAGE (1-866-487-9243).

You may also be able to file a private lawsuit against your employer for violating the FLSA. If you are successful in your lawsuit, you may be entitled to recover back pay, overtime pay, and liquidated damages."
